After some reading on- and off-line, I'm exploring the use of -clogit- to counter this (although I incur a substantial df cost since -clogit- models only produce estimates for groups and not individuals). As a test, I've fitted this model: note: multiple positive outcomes within groups encountered. note: 66 groups (263 obs) dropped due to all positive or all negative outcomes. [...] Conditional (fixed-effects) logistic regression Number of obs = 1249 Wald chi2(12) = 175.60 Prob > chi2 = 0.0000 Log pseudolikelihood = -374.99176 Pseudo R2 = 0.3333 (standard errors adjusted for clustering on newparln) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Robust con01ge | Coef.

The main findings here are that voting Conservative at local council elections 1 or 2 years earlier before the general election (GE)raised the odds of voting Conservative again at the GE, as we would expect, net of all other effects. The key question is this: are these valid findings from fitting such a model? To ask a 'supplementary' question: if using -clogit- _is_ valid, am I right in saying that including 'alternative-specfic constants' (Liao, 1994: 61-2) wouldn't make sense in estimating the above model? (it certainly produces garbage output!). Thanks.
